None (rogue, former member of 6th squad)Rank:
None (rogue, formerly unseated shinigami)Appearance:Strengths:
Rare Zanpakuto: Kazuhiko's sword has very rare abilities which both can be used for killing and healing. But in return it's very difficult to master and control.
Kido Expert: Kazuhiko is skilled in Kido, especially in Bakudo.
Healer: He is highly skilled in spirit healing and medicine (and indirectly expert also in poisons/drugs).
Sharp Perception: Kazuhiko overall has very sharp senses and is able make notice of things what other misses, subtle clues or notice when things are amiss. Even if at times he is not sure why
something is amiss at first.Weaknesses:
Hemophobia: Kazuhiko has outright terror for blood. Become paralyzed and go catatonic upon seeing it and go nauseous upon feeling or smelling it.
Physically feeble: Kazuhiko is not tough, strong nor fast. Below average of normal rank and file shinigami. It's not because he is lazy or did not work out, he simply either has no physical talent or simply lacking body energy pull off said feats successfully. But he can stay wake even while exhausted and have lots of stamina and endurance.
Poor swordsman craft: Kazuhiko is below average shinigami in swordplay, his reflexes and overall skill is lowest compared any other shinigami (ten year olds can kick his ass if they had practiced from young age).
Poor self-esteem: Because of his flaws Kazuhiko does not recognize nor acknowledged things which he is good at. Resulting that he lacks confidence in anything he does and would not take initiative or make decisions and at times be silent when he should talk.Zanpakutō:Name: ブラッククラッド芸者
(Burakkukuraddo geisha; Black-clad Geisha)Shikai
"Perform, Burakkuraddo geisha!" Upon this invocation Kazuhiko's Zanpakutō transforms into a pair of sai's
. The weapons cannot injure nor kill anyone (the blades are simply that blunt). However it's actual power is more closer to kido than actual combat technique. The both sai's can manipulate sound waves, weaken, strengthen them and direct them. However it asks great deal of focus and skill able control this power as it can easily go out of control and direct sound waves in ways what wielder would not desire it to. At this stage sounds cannot kill living beings but it can shatter/weaken physical objects and structures (depending on size and solidness of said things) and also cause pain and stun living things.Bankai
Have not discovered yet.History:
Shuda Kazuhiko is son of Shuda noble family and as tradition he was send to shinigami academy despite his own wishes (pressured by his father who is retired shinigami hero). He did not excel anyway in combat in school; in swordplay nor in offensive kido. But he showed great skills in medical arts and also in seals, barriers and binding. So he did not fluke but he graduated in way which displeased his father. More so he was displeased from secret shame of Kazuhiko which prevents him becoming doctor; hemophobia.
For his own good father send him toughest squad after graduation; squad 6. Giving a direct permission for both captain and lieutenant use whatever measures toughen Kazuhiko up and become even half-decent warrior. Kazuhiko was put on trials, practices and once seeing the kinder methods did not work the lieutenant and captain went more and more extreme forms of bullying as means to make him into a warrior despite his natural feebleness or lack of skill in swordplay (and forcibly try remove his hemophobia). Kazuhiko suffered and anguished everyday, but squad kept silent about it because Kazuhiko was reason why others in squad suffered also because him being dead weight in squad combat operations. Kazuhiko tried demand transfer or even quite from squad 6, but either lieutenant, captain or his own father prevented paperwork never completed.
During one intense physical beat up bullying Kazuhiko heard faint voice....a femine voice whisper from his sword...hearing her whisper her name and kindly grasp and use her to show Kazuhiko is not
weak! Show strength of his spirit and resolve. Kazuhiko then called on his zanpakutō's name in front of captain and lieutenant! Unaware of his zanpakutō's abilities he shouted and waved wildly with his sai's. His weapons collected the sound of his shouting, empowered it and send it sharp high frequency pitch on support and foundations of the squad 6 HQ by random luck. As result soon whole building started shake and with abrupt action it collapsed! Crushing captain and lieutenant of squad 6 before they had time to react and also killing dozen other shinigamis who happened to be in building at the time. Only reason why Kazuhiko survived because he screamed and covered himself with his weapon, which collected his screams and turned into defensive stone rupturing shield above him to prevent crushed by stone but coated in stone fragments and dust.
Upon seeing destruction what he caused and then learning his weapon caused it....he ran and hided from shinigami patrols which reacted late to his escape because collapse of Squad 6 caused both chaos and nobody knew what happened until one survivors told seeing Kazuhiko fleeing the scene with zanpakutō. Kazuhiko strictly sealed his zanpakutō to point he no longer heard voice of the zanpakutō at all and placed even enchanced peace string on his katana so it cannot be drawn. Ever since he has been on run and moving and living in outskirts of Soul Society in distant communities, living by as humble quiet living healer. Using disguises and false names to keep investigators off his back.
